Paz Vega and Jamie King have The Spirit

As if Frank Miller’s adaptation of Will Eisner’s The spirit didn’t have enough sex appeal already – with Scarlett Johansson and Eva Mendes (and Samuel L Jackson and Gabriel Macht for the ladies), the director has added Paz Vega and Jamie King just in time for shooting to start today in New Mexico.

The story of a young police officer (Macht) who returns from the dead to fight evil and battle his nemesis The Octopus (Jackson), The Spirit will now include Vega as Plaster Of Paris, a knife toting bad girl and King as Lorelei, a phantom siren who leads men to their death.

Miller’s aiming for a January 2009 release date.
